alrighty soo i guess nothing over exciting has happend the past two days...lets see weds morning like every monring we hang out with the kids at the toddler house till about noon. its kind of frustrating with them because there at the age where they cna talk but since we dont speak or understand to much of their lanugauge its hard to commincate there has been a few tempertantrums!! however since we are given a particualr group of children we can not spend all are time witht eh oterh kids, we have a play room which the kids are only aloud in with there volunteer (me & alison) we have to lock ourselves in because the other kids always try and come in so now they jsut stand outside the door crying and knocking it sucks alot especailly since the older kids always help us find are little ones ( they all look the same ) and then theyw ant in to play and we ahve to say no and shut the door, so hopefully we can find some extra time and hang out with them too.
the last two days we have had four kids go hom with their "forever families" that was exciting one family was from spaine, utah, holland, and umm colorado i think.
